CholBiome®X3 contains OptiBiotix’s probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum LPLDL®, monacolin K from red yeast rice and vitamin B3 as active ingredients, which provides it with a natural, powerful, multitarget and synergistic mechanism of action for cholesterol reduction.
L. plantarum LPLDL has the natural capacity to communicate and interact with our liver, one of the main organs involved in cholesterol and fats metabolism, through what scientists call the microbiome-liver axis. This way LPLDL modulates blood cholesterol levels from the intestine.
Monacolin K is a compound naturally produced by the yeast Monascus purpureus when it ferments rice, which has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. It inhibits the generation of new cholesterol in the liver, preventing its buildup.
Vitamin B3 is necessary for the metabolism of fats in the cell, which promotes the reduction of blood LDL (bad) cholesterol and the increase of HDL (good) cholesterol.
